The Berlin & Swedish Soundpainting Orchestras destroy SATIE: DREI ENSEMBLES IN BIRNENFORM (THREE ENSEMBLES IN THE SHAPE OF A PEAR)
A musical, scenographic and theatrical live composition directly inspired by the absurd world of the fabulous Erik Satie.
The Berlin & Swedish Soundpainting Orchestras devote themselves to the musical and literary ouevre of Erik Satie. By means of the complex soundpainting language they explore the radical and humorous aesthetics and deliver a complex conception of this eccentric composer. It might even happen that this bearded french guy will die during the process. Inspired by the absurd theater, the production design is made up of a mixture of the fashion and art of the fin de siecle as well as contemporary influences.
